We accept Visa, Visa debit and Master card through our payment provider Worldpay. American Express and other payment options are offered through our partner PayPal, depending on the availability for the country where you reside. Please check PayPal's guidance for more information.
Yes, the shipping cost is a global flat rate. We send our products by EMS (Express Mail Service by the Japanese post office). In very rare cases, however, it may not be possible to deliver to certain countries by EMS. In this case we will send by regular air mail and we might ask you to pay the price difference if it is more expensive.
All of our products are sent from Japan, where our business and shop is located.
We usually ship the item within 1-3 working days after the payment is received. The parcel will then be in transit for 2-4 working days, so altogether please calculate about 7 working days. Also please keep in mind that it may take some additional day(s) at customs (which unfortunately we cannot know or influence) and there might be some delay in case of holidays or due to a sudden shortness in stock.
After your item is shipped off, we immediately send you the EMS tracking number by email so you can keep track of your parcel's location at any time of day from Tokyo to wherever you live. It is trackable, safe and insured, so there's no need to worry. However, please track your parcel yourself and make sure you know when it arrives. We will keep you informed if there are any major delays and are always there for you by email. It is in our interest to satisfy our customers.
We understand your wish for situations like birthdays, Christmas and so on, and will try our very best to get it there in time. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee the delivery date because there are too many external factors that we cannot control (e.g. busy times for delivery services, such as Christmas). Please place your order early enough when you want to have the item before a specific date.
Within Japan it is possible but for overseas unfortunately we cannot specify from our side. Please contact your local post office with your EMS tracking number (after you have received it) and consult with them whether this is possible to arrange.
This will become complicated, so please carefully fill out the registration for the shipping address at the start of the transaction. Once the item has been shipped, there's no way to change it from our side.
You should receive an order confirmation mail. If you did not, please first check your spam mail. If you still cannot find it at all, please contact us either by email and we will check if everything was processed correctly. If there is a problem, we will solve it.
Please always keep track of your parcel with the EMS tracking number that we send you. If you are still in doubt, please contact your local post office with your EMS tracking number. If your local post office cannot deliver the item to you because you are not at the address specified when they deliver, then after being kept at your local post office for a certain time (this varies from country to country), the parcel will be returned to us. In this case we will have to ask you for the shipping cost for a second shipping. To avoid this happening, please be sure to pick up the parcel at your local post office in case it could not be delivered to you by the delivery services.
Some items have English instructions, but some do not. Please check the product description. Most items are pretty straightforward to use even without manual, but a few may require Japanese language ability. Our staff are also happy to help with questions about how to use an item.
Our pre-order system is a non-binding information system. This means that you will be added to our list of potential buyers for that product, but no payment will be processed by placing a pre-order. Once the item becomes available you will be informed by email with a link to purchase it, and you can still make your decision at that stage as to whether you ultimately want to purchase the item or not.
No. Our products are available only in Japan. That is the uniqueness of our shop, giving you the chance to get your hands on a product that is hard to get.
Unfortunately we cannot lower the amount or declare items as gifts. Since we are a company we need to truthfully declare our turnover and therefore cannot send a fake invoice. Also, it will not help if we do not include the invoice, because in that case your customs will define the value by their own research and it might be much higher than it would have actually been. Thank you for your understanding.
Please either use our contact form or email us directly to the email address provided in the order confirmation. In either case please make sure that you use the same email as you registered in the shop or for your order. Please also include your order number if your inquiry concerns a current or past order.
We guarantee that we will try our best. Please send us the link of the website where you found an item cheaper and we will see if we can make you the same or a better offer.
Sorry, but we do not wholesale our products at this time.
